Paul Ryan’s Budget Plan: Good But In No Way Extreme


Nancy Pelosi is, of course, whining and wringing hands about how the Ryan plan will cause people TO DIE!!!!1111

NancyPelosi: The #GOP Ryan budget is a path to poverty for America’s seniors & children and a road to riches for big oil #GOPvalues

Why do evil Republicans hate old people and children? Sigh. Her lines are as old and tired as Larry King.

Geoff over at Ace of Spades puts the plan into proper perspective. He even has a nifty graph that makes it easy for those of us (by that, I mean me. Well, and President Obama) who aren’t great at math and such (math is hard).

This is what the President and his crackerjack economic team have wrought. A one-year deficit that is so large that it can only be paid back if everything goes exactly right. And if everything goes exactly right, we’re still looking at decades before we can get back to the debt level we had only 6 months ago.

But, on the bright side, perhaps as early as 2023 we can start working on paying off the FY10 deficit.

So when the Dems start their caterwauling about how “extreme” the GOP’s suggestions are, just remind them that these “extreme” suggestions may not succeed in paying back even 1 year of Obama’s spending.

Extreme? Not so much. What is extreme is the Democrat agenda that has gotten us where we are and their refusal to deal with reality.
